Tailing Flash

>: tail -f /Users/jspiro/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash\ Player/Logs/flashlog.txt

How did it never occurred to me to tail with Flash before? Shameful.

Though, really, I wish I could control who gets to write to that log, or identify who IS writing to it -- there's so much spam from other running SWFs.

It's more than a little ridiculous that N swfs may be running, but only 1 flashlog.txt exists...

grep is a good way to sort out what you're looking for. I usually create an alias to tail my flashlog (something like "tf"), then just pipe to grep to get what I want.
